negotiator, erin david miller. now, in that interview, hagel said this. "the jewish lobby intimidates a lot of people up here." now, today of that comment about the "jewish lobby," hagel said categorically, i regret it. >> i've already said i regret referencing the jewish lobby. i should have said pro-israel lobby. i think it's the only time on the record that i've ever said that. >> all right. well, earlier, i spoke with one senior lawmaker who was there, who opposes hagel's nomination. senator john barrasso of wyoming, the senate's fourth highest ranking republican, and i asked him whether that controversy over jewish versus israel lobby, it's finally time to put that to rest. >> well, i'll tell you, erin. i think that chuck hagel appeared weak and wobbly today, unconvincing, and not the kind of sound judgment and strong leadership you need in a secretary of defense. i've met with him privately, as well. the bottom line is, senators are not intimidated, as chuck hagel refers to, by any lobby. when the national interest of the united states is at stake, and specifically, our security, peop

might get to know a bit more about him and from a very unusual place. cnn editorial producer erin mclaughlin joins us from london. first off, remind our audience, who was richard iii? >> richard iii was one of the most infamous kings portrayed by shakespeare himself as a vial and twisted villain. he's been accused of murdering both of his nephews in an attempt to keep hold of the throne. and he met his demise in 1485. all the way back in 1485 during what was called the battle of bosworth field. he was killed in action and henry vii were victorious in battle and the burial place of richard iii has long since been forgotten. that is, of course, until now. over 500 years later, a team of archeologists are poised to release their findings as to whether skeletal remains found buried in a parking lot, i new thisp mu niceple parking lot are the remains of richard iii. the media is dubbing it, the king in the parking lot. >> why do they think it is him? was it apparent how he was killed or something that was in that parking lot all these years later? >> so far the evidence that they presente
the circumstances of his death. >> you know, erin mclaughlin joins us from london. what does this discovery of richard iii mean? >> hi, christine. historians really think this is an opportunity to rewrite history. these are the culmination of months of detailed analysis, including dna testing, radio carbon testing, environmental sampling, and not only tell us beyond any sort of reasonable doubt that this was, in fact, richard iii, but they begin to paint a picture as to who this man was. he was 32 years old when he died. he was suffered from severe scoliosis or curvature of the spine, died at the battle of bosworth due to blunt trauma at the back of his head. his naked body strewn to a horse, brought to a grave and hastily dug and thrown in there without a shroud or coffin. we hope this will paint a different picture of richard iii, one that challenges shakespeare's portrayal of a i'll ha vile and evil monster. >> you hear of this story at the tower of london, how he killed his nephews, the little boys. and this was a medieval time when these were the things that dukes and kings did to each
